Dear horophiles, I have a question. So often I see around “watches” point one thing - “what is to be a watch collector”.
Explain me, where is a line or moment when you can be named “collector”. Im seriously.
I have way more watches than usual man, as you may predict. But comparing with basic “watch collector”, Im a guy who cleaning floor for pro players. So... Where is it? Physically. As close as possible . Not theoretically.
When you understood - ...., Im in system.
I loved watches many years. But it was like ... “i like icecream”. But later it’s getting in you more and more. And here we go, you already know not just top 20 brands, but you know movements caliber, type of glasses and sort of bezels. But that just start...
Then you can name watch on pictures (but this ends very quickly). You are member on most main forums ( ...., how that’s happened?), your comments become very smart but very snobby.
So, when? When you say - “Oohhh, its now. I finally have Speedmaster or Daydate or rare IWC, so now I is WATCH COLLECTOR”. When? When is happened?
P. S. My apologies for so many words.
